There's a new Spider-Man game coming to the PlayStation 4. The trailer was just unveiled at E3. Why are you reading this text? Just watch the trailer!

What do you think?

I'm really digging the new costume, hopefully this can be the Arkham Asylum of Spider-Man games we really need more AAA superhero games.

It looks fun . I don't like the costume , but I'll still pick it up . Spidey games are typically fun cuz of their free roaming !!

I think that if they were to switch the white to black then the costume would look pretty damn good

I'll probably buy this because I can't miss out on a chance to swing around as Spidey. That last one was not great (It looked amazing but was way too short and really rough around the edges). Insomniac makes some great games though, so I have high hopes this time around.

The game looks awesome, but it's an idiotic move to isolate this as an exclusive. Spider-Man games have never been big enough to make a profit from a single platform, and it's a true shame if this actually turns out to be solid.

Not necessarily, the game could be boosted by the release of Spiderman Homecoming, especially if the game gets great reviews

I am in agreement with the exclamation of surprise. A costume should not be the factor for a game purchase, it's purely cosmetic.

The costume is ridiculous, since when has he EVER looked like that ??? never as far as i recall... I will agree however there needs to be more info on it prior to making my judgment about buying it. I'm all for a spider-man game, the last one i owned was back in PS2 days i believe, and it was great !!! you had the option of the black symbiote costume with symbiote moves, regular and a few other ones that i cannot recall. but im sure it will be like what a few of you said... free roam to go around doing stuff, hopefully a bunch of classic villians from the rogues gallery, and yes if they do allow you to change skins of his costume then yea more then likely i would greatly consider jumping on it.

You realize how limited a market is with just one platform right? Especially for a licensed property? Spider-Man may be growing with popularity again in the film market, but the games aren't a new thing. I want this game to succeed, I want a great Spider-Man game again, but to believe that limiting that market is a smart idea just because Sony owns the rights, is suicide. Not everyone with a PS4 is buying this game, just as it's the same when the game releases multi-platform.

I am in agreement with you. Its a crying shame that this is a PS exclusive.

On another note, I'm not really digging the suit. They should have kept the generic suit.

Numerous Spiderman games allowed for costume changes either earned or dlc purchases but the simple fact is a cosmetic decision like Spidermans costume, different as it may look, should not be the deciding factor in any gamers purchase. Especially not one that has such minor changes, if it were say, bright pink spandex with nothing covering his legs or arms, I would agree.

Ultimately, I feel I want to see some real gameplay before I decide if I want to buy this game

I don't understand the complaints about this being a PS4 exclusive... Sony is funding the development and is co-developing the game with Insomniac. In other words, we wouldn't be getting the game at all if not for Sony, and I'd rather have an awesome Spider-Man game that's exclusive than not have one at all.

If you want to play it, you'll just have to get a PS4. That's how exclusives work. The same thing happened with Bayonneta 2 and Sunset Overdrive.

Anyways, some extra details:

  • Biggest team Insomniac has ever had working on a game.
  • Open world.
  • Been in development for "quite some time."
  • Will focus on both Peter and Spider-Man.
  • Trailer was in-game.

I'm even more excited for this than I was an hour ago.

They had me at the scene where Spidey crashes through that dinner and zips through the window. I like the costume except for that awful silver spider covering too much of his chest. Also, it's a Spiderman game so I'm confident in the wealth of alternate costumes they'll drop on us.

I haven't bought a new game in almost three years, but I'm going to start saving up for a PS4 and this game right now.

And they're saying it's not a Homecoming tie-in but come on :P... Let's not forget what was said about the last Captain America game

Sony went with Insomniac rather than having the in-house developers of Activision or a series of small companies each working on separate parts to produce garbage. The last two spider-man games were terrible.

Insomniac has made Ratcher & Clank, Spyro, Sunset Overdrive, Resistance, plenty of good and great games.

I honestly hope they make a sequel to the Deadpool game and have the same developers, I loved that game.

I also wish Rocksteady would make games for super heroes other than Batman

I'm not sure how I feel about the costume, just yet. That said this reminds me of Spider-Man 2 for the PS2 and that is a very good thing, still probably the best pure Spider-Man game that has been made. Big ups to Sony for managing to snag this as an exclusive.

Arkham city to be exact. Or Spider-man 2 movie game. I like shattered dimension and web of shadows but it wasn't the quintessential spider-man experience that we could have gotten instead of the amazing spider-man 2 game (which i admit had some good things going for it)
Which brings the question: If being Batman is about the detective and stealth skills... what's being spider-man about?

my first order of business, getting the costume unlock to change that thing. I am not liking the white spider. I cant tell how much is actual gameplay and how much is quicktime events. The amazing spiderman 2 trailer looked amazing as well, and then once I started playing it was terrible.

That coffee shop scene where he is hoping on the table looked amazing if it's actual gameplay. They incorporated that kind of style in prototype, where if you are holding down run you automatically hop over things and parkour, it looked fluid. I would say it is a cutscene but the people in the shop don't looked that bothered by spider-man being there, which makes me think it's just ai during gameplay.

I do not mind the suit if the overall game is good. Plus, you can probably change it anyway.

If it makes you all feel better, the suit gives out a Ben Reilly vibe in my opinion.

I am hoping this will be "The Arkham Series" for Marvel.
